Special Congratulations to my good friend Tony Lawlor who’s horse “Super Sophie” won the 1st race at Del Mar today!!!!

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

While chatting in the paddock prior to the race, Tony confided in me that he didn’t think his horse had much of a chance today. Well either did I as I had “Super Sophie” way down as the ALT 2 selection. Just to be on the safe side I put a little wager across the board and also included her on my pick 3….

Well the apprentice jockey Christian Santiago Reyes rode the perfect trip and positioned “Super Sophie” to mow down the favorite down the stretch which is exactly what she did to an impressive 3 1/2 length victory!!! We actually went back up to the Turf Club not thinking she was going to win and then had to scramble back down to the winners circle!!! I hope to have the photo posted as soon as I get it……. what a great experience!!! Thanks Tony and congratulations!!!

Del Mar Pick 4 hits 2x with a scratch to the favorite $373.80!!!

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

Today’s Pick 4 at Del Mar hits by using the top 4 selections on Nick’sPicks not once but twice. The #11 horse in the final leg (race 8 ) was scratched at the gate, therefore since the #11 was included in the top 4 selections, the scratch goes automatically to the favorite who was the #10 and the top selection. This gave us 2 live tickets to the favorite #10 who won the race.   A $256.00 ticket paid a nice little return of $373.80
